1759 -The Battle of Frisches Haff or Battle of Stettiner Haff
was a naval battle between Sweden and Prussia that took place 10 September 1759 as part of the ongoing Seven Years' War. The battle took place in the Szczecin Lagoon(German: Stettiner Haff) between Neuwarp and Usedom, and is named after an ambiguous earlier name for the Lagoon, Frisches Haff, which later exclusively denoted the Vistula Lagoon.

1813 - The Battle of Lake Erie, sometimes called the Battle of Put-in-Bay
was fought on 10 September 1813, on Lake Erie off the coast of Ohio during the War of 1812. Nine vessels of the United States Navy defeated and captured six vessels of the British Royal Navy. This ensured American control of the lake for the rest of the war, which in turn allowed the Americans to recover Detroit and win the Battle of the Thames to break the Indian confederation of Tecumseh. It was one of the biggest naval battles of the War of 1812.

You did not mention a very important event
The battle of Plattsburgh
Where a small fleet of American ship (on the order of Thomas Macdonough) defeat a British fleet (under the command of George Downie) for the control of the Champlain Lake
That victory stop the British invasion and save Plattsburgh if Macdonough was not victorious probably the war of 1812-1814 will have ended differentely.

1942 – Ocean liner RMS Laconia, carrying civilians, Allied soldiers and Italian POWs is torpedoed off the coast of West Africa and sinks with a heavy loss of life
The second RMS Laconia was a Cunard ocean liner, built by Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson as a successor of the 1911-1917 Laconia. The new ship was launched on 9 April 1921, and made her maiden voyage on 25 May 1922 from Southampton to New York City. At the outbreak of World War II she was converted into an Armed Merchant Cruiser, and subsequently a troopship. Like her predecessor, sunk during the First World War, this Laconia was also destroyed by a German submarine. Some estimates of the death toll have suggested that over 1,649 people were killed when the Laconia sank. The U-boat commander Werner Hartenstein then staged a dramatic effort to rescue the passengers and the crew of Laconia, which involved additional German U-boats and became known as the Laconia incident.

I am a freak for history so I just love your post. I think that to understand our world we have to know our roots and our history.
The story teach in one country is not necessary what is teach in another, ho the end fact are similar but not necessary the detail.
Take the battle of Trafalgar huge victory for the British but the reason behind the victory is rarely discuss in detail we have to read the Spanish and the French version to be able to make a clear opinion. Same for the war of 1812-1814 the version of the English or Canadian or from the State are different in the detail depending of the way it is teach.
To answer your question my ancestor came from France 3 brothers from the Normandy region in 1691 but a great uncle came earlier with the regiment de Carignan - Salière in 1665 but did not stay here.
